New wave-shaped channel glass profile obscures vision while creating distinctive design optics.

Pilkington Profilit wave does what channel glass does best – allows in natural light while obscuring vision, only it does so in an especially unique and visually intriguing way

Design professionals looking for dynamic glazed surfaces now have a new channel glass profile to choose from – Pilkington Profilit™ wave from Technical Glass Products (TGP). The wave-shaped channel glass system is the first of its kind, creating distinctive design optics and translucent surfaces for façades, interiors and object architecture. http://www.tgpamerica.com

Pilkington Profilit wave features a symmetrical, well-defined ridge texture that can intensify color and light to form dramatic optical variations. When viewed laterally, joints between the glass channels “disappear” to yield a continuous surface appearance.

The creative profile design is an extension of other options in the Pilkington Profilit channel glass system. It consists of self-supporting, ridged-cast glass channels in an extruded metal perimeter frame and is available in two color options: Standard Cast (patterned surface with slight green hue) and Amethyst (patterned surface with slight blue hue). Pilkington Profilit wave is compatible with standard Pilkington Profilit channel glass systems.

“Pilkington Profilit wave does what channel glass does best – allows in natural light while obscuring vision, only it does so in an especially unique and visually intriguing way,” says Jeff Razwick, vice president of business development for TGP. “It is sophisticated and functional.”
